"This nation has a rich history of presidents who respected the power, decorum, and integrity of their office. Unfortunately, that rich history ended the day Trump became president," said the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Michael R. Bloomberg. (Associated Press/File)

Bloomberg does a Soros and buys up law enforcement

- The Washington Times

Michael Bloomberg, according to various media reports, has been funding state attorney general offices and paying the salaries of key, politically liberal-leaning attorneys general -- a practice that gives all appearances of buying law enforcement on the local and state levels. And guess what: This is what George Soros does, too.

Obama is jealous of Trump's economy

- The Washington Times

Barack Obama, ex-prez, took to Twitter to try and claim that today's great economy is due to his 11-year-old policy -- suggesting, laughably, his White House is owed a big ol' thank you from President Donald Trump, from the business world, from America. Sorry, Mr. Obama, but to coin one of your own phrases: You didn't build that.

Mike Bloomberg slips in left's big pool of self-importance

- The Washington Times

Much ado has been made over Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg's condescending comments about farmers -- you know, the ones where he said in 2016 that he "could teach anybody" to "dig a hole," drop in a seed, cover with dirt, "add water" and voila, "up comes the corn." But really, this is how all Democrats think of conservatives.

Bernie the puppet master

It's a cruel irony: Just as U.S. economic metrics hit new peaks, along comes a guy who says he wants to transform the nation. Even crueler, crowds of naive followers hope he succeeds. Bernard Sanders and his "Bernie bros" are just what Americans don't need.

Housing asylum seekers not an option

Some think a possible solution to the problem of inadequately housed would-be immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border is to divert a portion of foreign aid to the cause. Not on my dime, please. And were I a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, where taxpayer monies are allocated, I wouldn't vote to spend foreign-aid funds to house asylum seekers, either. History shows that such an altruistic entitlement program would escalate to an annual expenditure monster that would be difficult to control and impossible to terminate. Ayn Ryan would have a fit.

Stone sentence was too harsh

The Justice Department was right to disavow the prosecutors' draconian recommended sentence of seven to nine years of prison for Roger Stone ("EXCLUSIVE: Edwin Meese backs Trump's 'legal right' but says intervening in criminal cases not 'wise,' Web, Feb. 16). Even anti-Trump former prosecutors agree that sentence was excessive and have predicted that Judge Amy Berman Jackson will likely impose a lower sentence.

'With All Due Respect' (book cover)

BOOK REVIEW: 'With All Due Respect'

Nikki Haley, appointed by President Trump to serve as United States ambassador to the United Nations, held that post from 2017 through 2019, performing with the same intelligence, moral clarity, and love of country that informed her three terms in the South Carolina House and two terms as the first woman governor of South Carolina, and the first Sikh-American governor ever of any state.
